HOUSTON COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Crockett police have charged a man in connection to the stabbing of his cousin on Christmas day.

Ashton Alexander Creag, 21, is charged with second-degree aggravated assault.

According to an arrest affidavit, officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Westside Drive in Crockett in reference to a disturbance at 4:14 p.m.

When they arrived, a man, later identified as Fredrick Scott Jrl, was walking in the road holding a blood shirt to his chest. He then fell down and deputies yelled that he had been stabbed. Officers asked who had stabbed him and that is when Creag walked out of the house and said he did it out of self-defense, according to the report.

Officers detained Creag and found a kitchen knife with an eight-inch blade with blood on it in the kitchen.

EMS arrived on scene and Scott could not respond to basic questions, due to the severity of the injury, a puncture wound on the left side of his chest, according to the report. He was taken by helicopter to a Tyler hospital.

Detectives spoke to Creag's mother, who said Creag had been taking money out of her purse. She confronted him on it and he denied it, according to the report. She said she then went into her room and Creag followed her. She said Creag started pushing her and Scott walked into the house and told Creag to stop.

The report states the mother said Creag began fighting with Scott, so she called 911. She said she was not aware that Scott had been stabbed until officers arrived.

Creag was interviewed at the sheriff's office and said his mother had accused him of taking her medication. He said she tried to hit him as she tried to close the door to her room to keep him out, so he pushed her arm away and continued trying to get in her room to talk with her. He said Scott then approached him and punched him in the face. He said Scott then hit him again in the living room, knocking him to the floor. Creag said he hit his head on a table in the room, then got up and went into the kitchen.

According to the report, Creag said he grabbed the knife and walked back in to the living room. Creag said Scott then stood up and pushed his body against the knife, according to the report.

Det. Clayton Smith said Scott is expected to recover from his injuries.
